Medical: Iniesta hopes to be back for pre-season

Barcelona's official website reports that Barcelona player Andrés Iniesta (25) aims to have recovered in time to join the rest of his team-mates to begin pre-season training on 20 July.

Last Friday, as soon as doctors from the Spanish football federation diagnosed his right thigh injury, Iniesta began his recovery process at Barcelona's Joan Gamper sports centre. At the moment, he is still in the early stages of physiotreatment and scans.

Iniesta torn a quadriceps muscle on the front of his right thigh during the league game against Villarreal on Sunday 10 May and although he played the Champions League final against Manchester United on Wednesday 27 May, he has never fully recovered from that injury. On Friday 5 June, the medical staff of the Spanish football federation confirmed that the player has torn a muscle in his thigh and eh was then expected to be out for the next six to eight weeks.

Iniesta gets injured way too much, he is glass man. But when healthy one of the best midfielders in the world.

he is not glass don my mate.its just when ur too good,people will tackle u harshly in laliga unlike the epl.

in epl,however,people can dive without getting noticed my friend so that will make the defenders get a red card and u cn gt away with it.

(similar to what ronaldo does)
